Hunting Parrotts
28 August 2013 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Paul Parrott is very good in this fairly typical variations-on-a-theme single reel comedy from the Hal Roach Studio. It begins when he goes into the woods to hunt rabbits and ends, exit, pursued by bear. It's not a plot, exactly, but it has a beginning, an ending and events that make sense in a silent-comedy sort of way. If you've ever seen Elmer pursue Bugs, you know what you're getting and the execution is very good.

Paul, who looked pretty much like his brother, Charley Chase, went behind the camera within a year or two of making this film and directed some of Laurel & Hardy's best shorts. Like his brother, he was skilled in comedy construction. Also like his brother, he was prone to addiction and died too young of what may have been drug overdoses.

That would be a decade and a half in the future. In this one, he's funny.
